Gallery to Slideshow
[resolved] Installed plugin, nothing happens. What am I missing? (9 posts)

    I installed the plugin and activated it. I then add a gallery to a post. From the description, it sounds like it should automatically convert this to a slideshow, but when I view the post all I see is the regular gallery.

    Sorry to be dense about it, but what have I failed to do here? Would really appreciate any help because this plugin seems to be just what I am looking for.

    Thanks!

    Hi mesmonde,

    I would suggest trying the plugin on a fresh install and deactivating all other plugins. If the problem persists let us know.

    Kind Regards!

    I'm guessing that the complete lack of any [expletive deleted] documentation at all is the reason that this user and many others are having trouble with this waste of a plugin. Get some clue, will you? You should be ashamed of yourself, Matt.

    Yeah you ARE guessing. And what's with the attitude? No need to be a dick.

    Peace

    I agree with etfb (without the expletive), Matt. No documentation is poor form. I have the same problem and looked for the install instructions and then to this forum, both of which were less than helpful. I mean, you don't even give the shortcode in your install directions. Not all of us were there with you when you wrote the thing, and while I appreciate the free help in making my site, I think that if you stick yourself out there with something to help, you could be more helpful. Uninstalling.

    I agree with etfb and trailtownstill.
    A plugin with no documentation is just a waste of time.
    Sorry Matt but...UNINSTALL.

    hey guys plugin works just fine. it doesn't need any shortcode or documentation. All you need is.
    1- learn how to make a gallery. here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/
    2- follow the step 1 correctly, say thank you & give some respect to developer.

    I too am finding myself frustrated with the lack of documentation. Though the plugin is working fine for me on a basic level, there are some things about its behavior that I don't understand. For this, documentation would be useful since I can't find my answer in the forums.

    Hi Guys,

    As Roxor said, ALL you need to do is:

    1- learn how to make a gallery. here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/
    2- follow the step 1 correctly, say thank you & give some respect to developer.

    Which is clearly noted on the plugin description page: "This plugin for WordPress converts the built in gallery into a simple and responsive slideshow".

    This plugin does NOTHING beyond altering the output of the DEFAULT gallery. If you want to make advanced changes, then you have to dip into code ( which has been written with lots of hooks to make it very extensible and customisable ).

    Kind Regards!
